A very somber Joe Scarborough, in a rare Sunday morning appearance on MSNBC, called out Donald Trump for his ugly Twitter attacks on his critics, saying the president is causing some to believe he has become “unmoored” by the pressure of the job.
During a special pandemic edition of “Morning Joe,” the MSNBC host skipped over the personal attacks the president made against him on Saturday — accusing him of murder — to talk about Trump’s demeanor as the death toll from the pandemic crisis hits 100,000.
“The president criticized Barack Obama, of course, for golfing, has golfed so much more than Barack Obama this far in and did it again yesterday in the midst of this crisis,. Also insulted his last opponent, re-tweeting something that called her a, quote, a ‘skank,'” the MSNBC host explained. “The constant attacks for Nancy Pelosi, at Nancy Pelosi even though America, for the most part, has come together to bend the curve.”
“This president does not seem to be anything resembling a president that wants to bring the country together,” he continued. “More and more people are concerned that he’s unmoored. And more, I think, tragically, unmoved by the nearly 100,000 dead Americans.”
Trump’s angry words and Coronavirus surge darken Independence Day weekend in America
The United States marked an unusually somber Independence Day on Saturday, with President Donald Trump bashing domestic opponents and China -- but praising the country's coronavirus response, despite a record surge in cases.
Across the country, virus fears dampened or nixed Main Street parades, backyard barbecues and family reunions on a day when Americans typically celebrate their 1776 declaration of independence from Britain.
Instead of adopting a unifying tone, Trump -- facing a tough re-election and eager to mobilize his political base -- railed against protesters demanding racial justice after unarmed African American George Floyd was killed by a white police officer.
